The bugs finally seem to be heating up for the coming season. Today, Blue Winged Olive mayflies were hatching on The Pond and from the Gazebo bridge down to the dam hole at Beat #5. Swallows and other hovering birds called one’s attention to the surface where trout were rising with reckless abandon. It was a beautiful sight to behold. It had been raining earlier in the day and the trout started rising when the breeze disappeared around 3:00 p.m. I suspect that when the weather warms up we will be seeing the BWO hatch coming up earlier in the day followed by Pale Morning Duns.
